My computer monitor died this evening. I'm currently using and old (and rather small) monitor from a PC we weren't using anymore.
I've been looking at flat screen monitors because now, of course, all our monitors are too narrow for websites, although that's not really that much of a problem. Dell currently has a good deal on a flat screen monitor, but I don't want to get it.
This is why.
The cats can't sleep on top of a flat screen monitor, and it's very companionable to have a cat sleeping on the monitor while I'm on the computer. In the wintertime, there's almost always a cat up there. That's Tamlin relaxing on top of the (no longer working) monitor this afternoon - away from younger son's ten year old birthday party. Tamlin is currently keeping me company, although Lina is more likely to sleep on the monitor.
You can get used CRT monitors (the type we already have) really cheaply on Craigslist, but I would have to find one with a relatively flat top.
Here's Lina enjoying the streamers in the kitchen.
To those from YNET:
(and thank you to Tal who told me the right word to use!)
